Developer Kixeye has launched synchronous multiplayer for War Commander, its massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game, according to a press release from the developer.
With the new Live Battles feature, players will be able to conduct their skirmishes in real time.
"Live Battles for War Commander was the number one most requested feature by our community, and we spent the past four months working to get it right," said David Scott, executive producer at Kixeye. "We see this as the future of competitive multiplayer games for browser, and it's quantum leaps forward of what's currently on the market."
Other recent updates to War Commander, which Kixeye says has five million monthly users, include a new world map and new territories. In future updates, the developer plans to bring customizable units and a wider range of defensive towers.
